Last month, Bishop Nolbert Kunonga of the Anglican Church of the Province of Zimbabwe criticized the Prime Minister, complained about the visit of the controversial Nigerian prophet TB Joshua and expressed his criticism about the draft of the new constitution. Is there any Good News left in this world, Nolbert?

According to The Herald, “on TB Joshua, Archbishop [sic!] Kunonga said genuine prophecy should not be preoccupied with deaths of people. ‘It’s diabolic. It’s Satanism to think in terms of the death of a person. Evil powers can also work just like spiritual powers.’”

Nehanda Radio reported that “Kunonga preached about the holiness of Robert Mugabe and the ‘satanic’ behaviour of [Prime Minister] Tsvangirai to a group of disinterested church members and a pocket of Zanu-PF supporters at Dimbe Primary School, Chief Svosve area. The majority of those present were state security agents from CIO and the army.”

He reportedly said, “You are sons and daughters of the soil and should not hesitate to regain land which rightfully belongs to you. Whites like other aliens should not be allowed to own land and other properties in the country as they are strangers. Tsvangirai is a white man masked in black skin. He is like the Biblical Pharaoh who enjoyed the suffering and economic deprivation of his own people. On the other hand, Mugabe is the Biblical Daniel, sent to suffer for the cause of his people.”

Kunonga boasted that he ignited the property grab as he was the first to seize Anglican Church buildings and other assets in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi, starting in 2000.

“I took 3,800 church properties in the region since their title deeds were in my name. There was no way the properties could remain under charge of the church controlled by whites and their black puppets. Bishops such as Julius Makoni, Chad Gandiya and others are MDC-T and furthered Western interests,” he said.

Sharing his version of ecclesiology, Kunonga invoked, “Churches should protect Mugabe’s indigenisation policies, no matter the cost. This world is not for cowards and as Christians; we must gear ourselves for a bloody war against white interests. Those who participate in the land grab and future seizure of mines and other properties in the hands of aliens, will definitely enter the kingdom of God.”

Sounds like the “Archbishop” has a direct phone link with the Almighty. Ciao! I am on my way to the nearest Telecel office to get myself one too.
